This romantic comedy parodies the world of media and politics. Julia can't sleep. Neither can Kevin. Julia is an idealistic speech writer for the New Mexico Senate race. Kevin is also a speech writer, but he writes for the opponent with an aggressive, bloodthirsty style. Kevin and Julia would make a perfect match, but because they are on opposite sides of a heated campaign, their relationship is problematic. When Julia's former boyfriend returns to renew their relationship, more problems appear.
